First Down with Fr. Eric (June 13, 2021)

Dear Friends,

The Church finds itself in the position of learning how to serve a community that is ready to regather and move forward, while another part of the community will take a little more time before feeling safe to return. The ability to serve the in-person community and the online community is the new reality for the Church today.

St. Patrick is opening up more and more with on-campus meetings, gatherings and other ministry presence. The full opening is planned for this September and we are scheduling with that in mind.

Our online Mass will now be live-streamed every Sunday during our 10:30 am Mass. We are now at a point where we are able to have our Sunday liturgy at our parish be viewed by those who choose to view the Mass. The Mass can be viewed LIVE on our website, on Facebook and our YouTube channel. Once Mass is completed, it will be sent by our Sunday Email Connection so that anyone can click once to view the Mass. Mass will still continue to be available on demand so that at any time people may view the Mass.

Sunday Communion in Fenlon Hospitality Center from 9:15-10:15 am is still continuing. The people who are not yet ready to return to public liturgy are thanking us for making this possible. We will patiently guide them until everyone can feel safe gathering again.

Peace in Christ,

Fr. Eric
